There is a splice at roughly 1:30 into Good Lovin'. The recording was normalized and retracked using Sound Forge and CDWave.

Mix is perfect and their sound is good and dirty.

Yeah, it seems they started playing it out too slowly and Jerry hit the gas. It was actually nice when they did it mellow. But a slowed down version would have lasted nearly and hour maybe! God, what a band!

Subject: 4 Pigpen songs = 5 Stars.
High quality stereo audio, and excellent mix (for 1969).

Alright! We got a show with 4 songs sung by Pigpen. Easy Wind, Searchin', King Bee, and Turn On Your Love Light (a 30 minute and 55 second version of TOYLL,too!).

To think, a year before this show it was 1968 and LBJ was President, I can barely remember it. It seems like it was in a whole different dimension and universe. 1968 was when the Revolution hit the streets...

"New Orleans-into-"Searchin'-into-Good Lovin'" is super-special.

Good Lovin' is sung by Garcia. Jerry doesn't seem to know where to come in, or he thinks the beat is too slow when Good Lovin' starts, so he starts his own begining, and everyone jumps in behind him...I guess the Kool-Aid was stronger than we know...

What a fantastic show, and a fantastic recording!

If you are a fan of Pigpen, and "Turn On Your Love Light", this show is a must have.

Eat, drink, be merry and listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the love.

...acording to deadlists. set list listed is for 8/30? what a treat to be able to listen to this stuff. really good sound considering this was nearly 40 years ago! easy wind, cool good lovin', with, as has been metioned below, jerry singing lead vocals. pretty high time. all and all: beautiful.

Subject: Jerry Sings Good Lovin'
I can't believe no one mentioned that Jerry is lead vocalist on Good Lovin' with Pigpen and Bobby on back up vocals. It also has the strangest intro of any Good Lovin' I've heard. They begin playing two songs at the same time until Jerry just hammers out the intro in unison with the drummehrs, wham! Great early version of this song with straight ahead hard driving rhythm. Phil and the drummers just kill on this song too!

A great show. Casey Jones is tasty, as is the early Easy Wind (Jer shines), and the New Orleans -> Searchin' -> Good Lovin' is rare and SO much FUN! Also, Pig is smokin' on King Bee.

Subject: Early Working Man's Transition
Well, the Dead are working through to that Workingman's sound and it's neat to hear some of the earlier versions of Casey Jones and Easy Wind. The Easy Wind is heavy, noticeably, the organ, most likely near the end of TC's run (but don't quote me). It's not a complete show, but so far, it's sounding pretty good on the stream. Think I'll burn another disc soon.
